Research Vice President at Gartner, Tom Eid, stated that SaaS was growing even after a decade of its introduction and its adoption was increasing within the markets. The interest in leaner alternatives to save money by the enterprises will further help SaaS and PaaS.
Customer relationship management is still the largest market for SaaS with its contribution of $3.8 billion in 2011 which is up by $600 million from 2010. SaaS could be representing 32% of the CRM market's software revenue in 2011.
SaaS also has an impressive presence in the CCC markets where their revenues will rise to $3.3 billion this year. The adoption of SaaS has been more widespread since the computing models have matured and the organisations are not concerned with security and service availability.

IT Management in Hawaii

By admin, July 27, 2011 4:30 pm

The state of Hawaii will use a $3 million grant from the Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) to create a new IT management office, which will be led by the state's first CIO. The new office will oversee the modernization of the state's technology system, providing greater accountability for data and spending, enhancing security and backup measures and reducing energy usage.

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie said that one of the biggest factors that is wasting taxpayer time and money is the state's outdated IT systems. The state's IT systems haven't been upgraded in decades, and given quickly technology advances this is unacceptable. The grant to fund the Office of Information Management and Technology (OIMT) is through the HCF, but the money origiannly came from the Omidyar Ohana Fund. This is a donor-advised fund established through the support of eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his wife Pam. Part of the grant money will also come from future sate legislation.
